Fractional Vacation Ownership at Villa La Estancia Residences Riviera Nayarit

FAQ: How do I know my fractional vacation schedule for use?

One of the benefits of owning a fractional vacation property is that you can plan your vacations years in advance, knowing when and where you will be enjoying your vacations. You will know exactly when you can use your property according to a rotating schedule for users which is updated every year and shows at least the next 5 years of your potential usage. No one will be in your property during your allotted time (unless you offer you time up for private rentals), so you can turn up last minute if you wish.

The great benefit of fractional vacation ownership is that you own a particular amount of allotted time for life – you don’t need to make a reservation, you don’t need to book in advance and you don’t need to fight for your dates. Depending on the fraction that you have purchased, you will be able to use that time every year, for the rest of your life, leaving your fraction as part of your estate to be inherited.

Fractional Vacation Ownership at Villa La Estancia Residences Riviera Nayarit

In the case of Villa La Estancia, the fractional vacations you can purchase are 1/8 (6 weeks) or 1/4 (13 weeks), as well as full ownership. Although the fractional blocks rotate, you will be able to plan ahead using the fixed schedule. In all of these cases, you can turn up any time during your allotted time, just giving us warning that you are on your way to make sure everything is in place for you.

Fractional vacation ownership also offers you the chance to swap internally with other owners, if there are specific dates when you wish to be able to use your fraction, although these exchanges are not guaranteed and subject to availability and willingness of other owners.
